When quit just isn't good enough.

Got another email from my friend today. It follows. 
Excerpted from an op-ed piece in a local newspaper:
" The total of human knowledge is increasing at an astonishing rate. It is estimated that it took 300 years for knowledge to double after 1450, but only 150 years for it to double again. From 1900 to 1950, it doubled once more. It is now believed to double every 900 days, and after 2020, it is expected to double every 72 days. 
" Regarding God, we debate our axioms and truths as if we have complete and comprehensive knowledge about God. We must always be reminded by the words of the prophet ( Isaiah ) when God says, " My ways are not your ways. My thoughts are not your thoughts. As the heavens are above the earth, so are my thoughts above your thoughts. "
What say ye?
I was tempted to respond with a reasoned reply asking him if he did not understand this as an indictment of his attitude to having a hard and fast knowledge of God, but chose not to. I was reminded of the quote about: "dragging you down to their level and then beating you with experience." Pax y'all and have a Holy Lent.
